A pasty, brownie and cookie heaven will be opening its doors in Plymouth this week to hungry customers – with a Cornish twist.
The Rise Bakery is a new concept from Rick Stein-trained restaurateur Lloyd Inwood, who says the shop is a “real labour of love”.
The local entrepreneur will be opening his first solo business this Friday, February 26, and you dough-n’t want to miss out.
The delicious new store aims to skyrocket traditional baking methods to a new level and it also has a range of vegan-friendly items on the menu.
Rise Bakery staff will be producing everything from sweet and savoury sourdough flavours to hearty Cornish pasties. Baked goods, including brownies and cookies will also be on offer.
As well as drool-worthy bakes, Rise has also developed its own Fairtrade coffee roast and certified organic tea blends.
Speaking about the exciting new venture, Lloyd said: “I started out my career training as a chef with Rick Stein where I learnt the importance of heritage.
“Rise is a real labour of love for me, so having the opportunity to create something that has that strong history and local provenance is really key and then bringing that to the area was equally as important.
“We’ve worked with some amazing Cornish suppliers to get us where we are today and I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved with Rise and I look forward to an exciting year ahead.”
The baked goods paradise also pays homage to our neighbours over the Tamar with some innovative Cornish eats.
Marketing executive at The Rise Bakery, Chloe Winslet said: “From working with Rick Stein, Lloyd really found his love for working with local produce that he just loves anything with real Cornish heritage.
“We’ve been working with loads of amazing Cornish producers – even down to our flour.
“Now we’re just really excited to bring this to the area and obviously Plymouth West End is a big thing at the moment and we just want to bring more of a community aspect to it.”
It was Lloyd’s intention to lead the way in starting the regeneration of what was historically a ‘tired’ part of town.
She continued: “We really think we can create a lovely community with this business. We’re hoping to have some nice seating areas outside and the feedback we’ve had from people who have just walked past has been really positive.
“We’re excited to bring a Cornish aspect to Plymouth.”
Not only are there meaty pasties, but the bakery also offers a delicious range of vegan and vegetarian nibbles.
Discussing her favourite treats at Rise, she said: “I’m actually a vegetarian so my favourite item on our menu is our vegan sausage rolls and Lloyd’s worked so hard to include a lot of vegan items into our range as we all feel it’s important to have that range for all our customers.”
The marketing manager said their tasty selection of goods will be available to purchase online, as well as gift boxes and cream tea delights.
The Rise also offer a home delivery service which you can book online is available nationally seven days a week or by collecting direct from the bakery at 20 Frankfort Gate, Plymouth, PL11QA.
